You mean, adding the picture of yourself in your Profile, like This??
That option is not available for regular members at the moment.
Only Moderators have their picute options on now.

Allright well, I've already made an ass of myself in the three seconds that I've been here, I read the "Rulebook" and have come here to start over. I'm a 16 year old guy, I live in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada, (just in case anyone else might) and well FMA is more addictive then reefer. I'm here to be alongside likeminded people.

And since I'm still a newbie, I'm going to ask what the time of the post actually is. Is it just arbitrary?

And on top of that, will someone tell me if either my avatar or sig are breaking any rules, cause you know, I don't want to spoil anything.

Wow. An official "Welcome Wagon" thread... sweet!

So, let's get to the point. LadyHawke78 at your service. (Or something like that, I guess.)
I've been reading these forums for a while now, but never bothered to post until recently when I was FINALLY able to get caught up on ALL of the manga chapters I'd missed.

I'm pretty much an "old lady" here in cyberland, so I warn you that my posts *will* tend to be philosophical and psychological wank-fests at times. If I ever go crazy and use too many huge words, please, smack me down a notch. Really. It's due to all of the grad-level reading I've done, even though I never officially attended Grad School. I'm a huge psychology geek, so I tend to over-psychoanalyse characters and situations. I apologize for this in advance. rolleyes.gif

I am adult with a normal, boring 9-5 job, but in my spare time I am a total geek, and a hardcore "FullMetal Alchemiholic". biggrin.gif I am also a cosplayer, and a Staff member of numerous anime cons on the East Coast (yes, I'm from the US.) Aside from FMA, some of my other favorite anime are FLCL, Haibane Renmei, Lupin III, and .hack//SIGN, and other manga I currently read are Dramacon, Iron Wok Jan, and Loveless. I really need to start reading Death Note...

Aside from work and geekdom, I also sing, shop A LOT, and dabble in fanart.

I *am* tall and blonde, but I *won't* be giving out my measurements, thankyouverymuch! XD
(However, if you ask nicely, I MIGHT, someday, post a cosplay pic...)

Now that work has decided to block LiveJournal from us, I hope this is will be a cool place to hang out when I feel like, well, not doing work. Hello Everyone!

@Zarpie - I don't mind, because each member is .. well, NEW, and deserves another posting, in my opinion.
If I say stuff like, "well read the post I made for someone else above for more info" then to me that's not showing that much of welcoming spirit, does it??
Hence, most of the time, I make new post, fresh for each person, although sometimes it's not very practical.

Haha, hope it's that simple. laugh.gif
Unfortunately ( laugh.gif ) or fortunately, each member has different interests, so you actually need to READ each member's "hi I'm new" post... The part I actually enjoy.. happy.gif
Some are fans of FMA anime, some are fans of FMA manga, some are fans of both.
Some also like other manga/anime, others don't, some write/read fanfics while others have no interests in them, and so on, so on...

Otherwise, we might as well program some spambot that could be triggered evertime new member posts here, and spill out those links and same general welcome sentenses.
But then again, it's not showing much of welcoming spirit that way, IMO.

To me, including links (or not,) are not important. (Except the links to rules and guides.)
What's important is, willingness to welcome, and if necessary, help out the new members.
Hence, sometimes I add links (if my Internet connection permit it,) and sometimes I don't.

For example, if the new member is already posting in many forums, then I do not need to include the links to those forums.
On the other hand, if new member has no other post, and seems like he/she can use some general tour of the board, I include links that might help him/her to get familialized to our forums.

In addition, sometimes I include links that might be of interests to that particular member, based on his/her introduction post, and other suff, like cosplay, photography, video games, and so on, and on.

Or, if we get someone who's completely new to the forum posting, then I may add whole different kind of informations, like, explaining differences among three "Reply" buttons, or what Avatar is, etc.
Yap it takes quite bit of time, if for doing just for +1 post count.. Try it!! laugh.gif

Anyway, the links or no links, if someone genuinely likes having new member and excited about having that new member and welcoming him/her, it shows in that welcoming post, and that's most important thing, IMO. happy.gif

This site can never get enough philosophical and psycoanalytical members, that's what makes it really interesting.

I hope some day you can help me inhance my skills, and feel free to use the biggest words you got biggrin.gif
welcome to the site by the way, although technically you've been here longer . . .anyway, hope to see you in the forums.

I've been lurking for a few days and bounced over to say "Hi, I'm new!" XD

I've been on some other forums, but none for FMA, and what can I say about how cool this place is that doesn't sound like sucking up? wink.gif

I tend to be character-obssession based, and currently, Greed is eating my brain. I also like Colonel Armstrong, Scar, and of course Ed. Al is just a little too level-headed; he's sweet and all but I like my characters with a slightly shorter fuse.

Uh, yeah.

I shall now retreat to the shadows and skulk around because I lack a leet avatar like all the cool kids. sleep.gif;

(I have a penchant for overdoing the emoticons at the end of sentences, but I know better than to make entire lines of them, at least. Yay previous-forum tutelage. Or something.)

Look forward to a nice "stay" here! smile.gif

Hello there koohii_fiend and welcome to the forum, ^^
Its good that you have other forum experience, This will most likely help allot, laugh.gif
First thing to start you off would be the Forum Decorum and the Forum Rules and Guide lines.
If you like discussing the characters then you will probably find yourself spending most of your time in the Character Discussion Area. This is where we have a thread dedicated to most of them.
You will find most of us here are pretty friendly and always willing to help out newbies, so PM a mod or most other people and you will get a warm welcome and help with your question. (I would segest looking up Tombow for any help to start with, he seems to know everything, tongue.gif).
Other than that I hope you enjoy your stay here with us and dont worry about emotions at the end of most sentence, Just try to keep them down and dont just spam (Goes here) them as that will cause the Mods to get annoyed at you. ^^

Wow, my first official welcome with links and all! I stole Tombow's post, tongue.gif

Its god you are enjoying it Arbnol.
The warn bar is there for moderators to be able to essentially "Warn you" about your bad behavior if you do anything. If it gets increaced to high I think you get banned or suspended for a little while. That im not shure on, But most people dont need to sorry about it unless you intend to try and create problems, wich im shure your not, ^^

Hi koohii_fiend, welcome to the board!!
You like Greed and Wasabi pea??!! Awsome!! laugh.gif
Glad you decided to join us!! Nice to have with us!!

Since Le Monkey has kindly posted some important links (hint, hint, the rules and guides ones.. please make sure to visit them, 'kay?? smile.gif ) here are some other threads you might like to check out..
We have many Greed fans on our board, yours truly included, and you can meet them on Greed fan's unite thread. biggrin.gif And, here is our You You Haksho thread (tho it's little old.)

For some nice FMA pics, have you checked our Gallery yet??
And, if you like photoshopping, skim through Test your sig here thread. They sometimes engage in nice tech talks for photoshopping.

(I prefer questions posted here than having sent by PM, so that others can also read them. smile.gif )

Otherwise, see you around the board!!
Hope you'll have great time with us!!

------------------------------------------------------------

@Amol - That's for Moderators to keep track of everyone's behavior. laugh.gif
Everyone has it under their name. I also have it, just like you, but I can only see mine, not others, just like you can only see yours. If someone keeps behaving badly, and get the warnings from Moderators, his/her warning level there may go up.
As long as you're being a good poster, no need to worry about. smile.gif
By the way, I see you started posting on the board. Good to see!! biggrin.gif

-------------------------------------------------------------

^^ @Le Monkey - Awsome welcome posts!! Please keep up!! biggrin.gif

If I say stuff like, "well read the post I made for someone else above for more info" then to me that's not showing that much of welcoming spirit, does it??
Hence, most of the time, I make new post, fresh for each person, although sometimes it's not very practical. To me, that's part of welcoming new members. happy.gif


Jeebuz, Tombow. You like *ARE* the Welcoming Committee here on the forums!
Thanks a lot for making an old timer feel welcome in a world of young 'uns.

Wow-- there are cosplay threads here on these open-chat forums? Nice...

Someone should make a separate thread just for FMA cosplayers here on the forums...
(I swear. I can't be the ONLY one here who saw Maj. Gen. Armstrong in chapter 64 and immediately thought "ZOMG! I *need* to cosplay her!") XD


Wasabi peas are AWESOME...
Tombow
^^ Haha, thanks, LadyHawke78!!
And, glad you "discovered" the cosplay thread!! laugh.gif
I'm looking forward to seeing many of your cosplay pics there!! biggrin.gif

Yap, Wasabi peas are awsome!! laugh.gif

Yo, I finally found a FMA forum that isn't... ugly... The last one was a little spammy. So yes I am new here, so let me tell you guys about meh:

-I'm a guy

-I can be hyper in certain situations, not that often though.

-I am short, and often made fun of because of it, I now knoe how Ed feels tongue.gif

-I don't know of many animes, but I really like the ones that I know about.

Hmm, I can't think of much... Ciao!
